Have a program load on startup

Hi. When I turn on my computer, I would like to have my email program load. I have tried to do it a couple od different ways but can get it to work. One way I tried was by following the steps at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314488 for the "Run at user logon policy" but I can't get it to work. The email program is Novell's Groupwise.  The icon for it currently appears on my taskbar but to get it to run, I need to click on the icon which then causes a sign-on screen to pop up. I'd like to be able to have the sign on screen pop up automatically upon startup instead of having to click on the icon. Any thoughts?

no problem. drag the groupwise icon into your start menu/programs/startup folder. make sure it copies the icon to that folder properly. relogin and groupwise will startup as soon as you login. if you want every person logging in to have this happen copy the groupwise shortcut to the: c:\documents & settings\all users\start menu\startup folder
